Defining the roles of the periplasmic chaperones SurA, Skp, and DegP in Escherichia coli.
Integral beta-barrel proteins (OMPs) are a major class of outer membrane proteins in Gram-negative bacteria. In Escherichia coli, these proteins are synthesized in the cytoplasm, translocated acrossExpand

Identification of a Multicomponent Complex Required for Outer Membrane Biogenesis in Escherichia coli
Gram-negative bacteria have an outer membrane (OM) that functions as a barrier to protect the cell from toxic compounds such as antibiotics and detergents. The OM is a highly asymmetric bilayerExpand

Lipoprotein SmpA is a component of the YaeT complex that assembles outer membrane proteins in Escherichia coli
A major role of the outer membrane (OM) of Gram-negative bacteria is to provide a protective permeability barrier for the cell, and proper maintenance of the OM is required for cellular viability. OMExpand

An ABC transport system that maintains lipid asymmetry in the Gram-negative outer membrane
The outer membranes (OMs) of Gram-negative bacteria have an asymmetric lipid distribution with lipopolysaccharides at the outer leaflet and phospholipids (PLs) at the inner leaflet. This lipidExpand

From acids to osmZ: multiple factors influence synthesis of the OmpF and OmpC porins in Escherichia coli
In Escherichia coli, levels of the two major outer membrane porin proteins, OmpF and OmpC, are regulated in response to a variety of environmental parameters, and numerous factors have been shown toExpand
